Abstract
The scalability of Network-on-Chip (NoC) designs has become a rising concern as we enter the manycore era. Multicast support represents a particular yet relevant case within this context, mainly due to the poor performance of NoCs in the presence of this type of traffic. Multicast techniques are typically evaluated using synthetic traffic or within a full system, which is either simplistic or costly, given the lack of realistic traffic models that distinguish between unicast and multicast flows....
